Spendthrift Farm's Thousand Words (Pioneerof the Nile), the undefeated Grade II winner at two and multiple stakes winner at three, sired his first reported foal on Tuesday when a filly was born at Bison Ridge Equine in Bartlesville, OK.
Bred by Hidden Creek Farm, the chestnut filly is the first foal out of the Laoban mare Laoban Furen, whose dam is the stakes-winning and stakes-producing Malibu Moon mare Hung the Moon. Laoban Furen is a half-sister to Brill (Medaglia d'Oro), a million-dollar, sale-topping yearling and Santa Anita stakes winner.
“She's a really nice foal out of a maiden mare that is from a good family. This is a classy-looking filly and very correct,” said Scott Pierce, owner of Hidden Creek Farm.
Thousand Words, a $1-million KEESEP yearling, retired to Spendthrift, where he bred 184 mares in his first book in 2021. He is set to stand his second season at stud for a fee of $7,500 S&N.
